Following Dubai-Manila-Dubai flight restart, operations in Seoul, Singapore, Taipei, Tokyo and Osaka resume
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, August 03, 2020: Following the restart of its once-a-week flights between Manila and Dubai in mid-July, Cebu Pacific (CEB), the Philippines' largest national flag carrier, resumes flights between Manila and key Asian destinations beginning August 1.
CEB has begun its twice weekly (Wednesday and Saturday) one-way flights from Tokyo (Narita) to Manila on August 1.
Twice weekly (Thursday and Saturday) flights between Manila and Singapore are set to begin on August 6; whilst the twice weekly service (Wednesday and Friday) between Manila and Taipei will begin on August 7.
One-way flights to Manila from Seoul (Incheon) every Thursday are scheduled to begin on August 6; whilst Osaka (Kansai) to Manila flights every Friday are set to start on August 7.
“We are taking a conservative and agile approach to rebuilding our international network. Whilst demand remains soft, there is latent demand for travel, particularly from stranded individuals and those who are eager to come home to visit their families,” said Candice Iyog, Vice President for Marketing and Customer Experience of Cebu Pacific.
Travel regulations issued by the governments of the Philippines, Japan, South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan will be implemented as necessary and applicable. These may include a requirement to secure a negative RT-PCR test prior to departure, mandatory COVID-19 screening or tests, and a mandatory 14-day quarantine upon arrival.
“We have taken extra precautions and assure travelers that preventive measures are in place so we can further build the trust and confidence in air travel,” Iyog added.
